Rustoleum Topside questions.

Post by loneagle on May 27th 2012, 11:06 am

I'm using Rusto topside and was wondering how long I have to wait between coats? Also do I need to sand after 24 hours? The instructions on the can say, wait 24 hours then sand with #220 before laying down the second coat. I just got the first coat on the fender this morning. I would like to get another down as soon as the first one is dry. I'm using 50% paint, 30% penetrol and 20% mineral spirits.

The rule of thumb is roll two coat's then sand with 600-800 grit between every two coat's.The key to less orange peel is to lay down very thin coat's, you may adjust your mixture to the thin side if you have peel problem's the best mixture that work's the best is a 50/50 mixture , kinda like 2% milk.

I did 50% topside 25% penetrol 25% MS with mine. I used a power painter for some and used a roller with others.

I decided to apply a coat every 8-12 hours. The paint is tack free after 4 hours. The coats are laying down real nice with the added penetrol, just a small amount of dust nibs.
